According to a press release, “‘The Few Things’ explores similar themes of heartbreak following a sudden breakup.”  JP recalls, “I spent a couple of days after my first real heartbreak surprisingly okay. Then I went to a concert at the Roxy in LA, not anticipating that my ex was also going to be there and she was – and we didn’t interact in any way. When I got home that night, I was no longer okay. A TED Talk and a few too many moments of self-destructive nostalgia later, I wrote ‘Same Room.’”

 

 

 

 

According to Billboard, JP’s follow-up single is, ” A very real representation of that awkward post-relationship moment, when both parties are still vulnerable.  It’s a fragile situation, and JP Saxe captures it perfect with his delicate vocals and instrumentation” and Flaunt Magazine calls JP’s music, “deliberate and detailed.”

Below are the lyrics to The Few Things:

 

I don’t say whats on my mind quite as much as you’d like me to
I’ve been hearing that my whole life, I promise, it’s not just you
But I so confidently want you
That when you say you’re insecure about my feelings I don’t take it serious
But if you need me to tell you more
You’re one of the few things that I’m sure of
You’re one of the few things that I know already
I could build my world of
One of the few things that I’m sure of
And I want you to unravel me
Come closer, come closer
Come closer, come closer
I don’t say what’s on my mind quite as much as you’d like me to
And often when I’m quiet you worry I’m hiding from you
And I know I keep a lot to myself
But still you’re more part of me than anybody else
So if you need me to tell you more
You’re one of the few things that I’m sure of
You’re one of the few things that I know already
I could build my world of
One of the few things that I’m sure of
And I want you to unravel me
Come closer, come closer
And I want you to unravel me
Come closer, come closer
And I want you to unravel me
Come closer, come closer
I don’t say whats on my mind quite as much as you’d like me to
I’ve hearing that my whole life, I promise, it’s not just you
You’re one of the few things that I’m sure of
You’re one of the few things that I know already
I could build my world of
One of the few things I’m sure of
And I want you to unravel me
And I want you to unravel me (Come closer, come closer)
You’re one of the few things that I’m sure of
You’re one of the few things that I know already
I could build my world of
One of the few things I’m sure of
And I want you to unravel me
Come closer, come closer
Come closer, come closer
